20 + year old Whilrpool refrigerator cycles on or ~8 minutes then goes off ~7. Temp in freezer normally zero and frig. is ~38 F. Ambient temp is 70 F, and coils are regularly cleaned. Is this normal or do...


Can you find a model number Donald? It could be just a start relay, overload and run capacitor. A defective fan motor can also cause those parts to go bad. Not sure about your 20 year old Refrigerator but from my view I believe they will outlast today's refrigerators. Just depends on what you can tell me more about the symptoms and results. Is the compressor hot? Sea Breeze

Not cooling


If it has a starting capacitor, it may be defective. If not, a hard start capacitor kit may force it to start and run again. Also unplug fridge 20 minutes and let the motor cool down. They have high temperature shut off thermostats to help prevent other problems.

My frigde is beeping consecutively and wont stop and the temperature wont show it just doesnt work ever since the electricity flickered this morning like five times


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Unplug it and wait 20 - 30 minutes. The compresor needs 10 to 15 minuts of off time to re-start. Power losses of less than 5 minutes will cause the compressor thermal overload to cycle repeatedly until something fails or in the case of non-electronic control defrost timers... the next defrost cycle. What happens is the coolant pressures are so high that the compressor can not start. Let it stabilize for 20 - 30 minutes by unplugging it and try it again. If that does NOT work respond here and we will help you.

This is what caused your problem: ever since the electricity flickered this morning like five times

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Refrigerator and freezer are not cold. Makes a clicking noise.


Check the starter relay which is next to the compressor behind the cardboard cover on the back. It may be burnt and can't start the compressor. It's on or near the compressor. If it's bad it will rattle when you shake it and may appear burnt.

Fan only spins when we spin does not start up on own should it always spin


Hi!

Fan should come on about two minute after freezer door is left open. If you have to spin it to start it up, replace it.($20 average.

When you say it tries to start, do you mean the compressor is audible for a short period and then there is a click.Compressor switches off for a minute or two.then tries to start again. If so, you need a new compressor.

Your thermostat need replacing if there is no leakage of the refrigerant(freon or CF4), i.e. there is no loss of the refrigerant gas pressure. Also check out the relays looking for a busted fuse .........................sodeep
